    Pros

    Great leadership, products are expanding, mostly stable network reliability.

    Cons

    Tough to complete an order, once you sell something the process is a mess, difficult to find the right person to fix an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Fix order completion. AE's are bogged down trying to finish orders when they should be selling.

    Pros

    Work life balance is excellent, relaxing environment, awesome managers, tons of vacation time,

    Cons

    Health benefits suck, low pay, yearly raises are a joke usually 1%. Only way to make a decent income and raise is to constantly move around within the company. Seems the company would rather let you leave then to pay you a decent wage to keep you

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your employees or keep watching good talent leave

    The people I work with are awesome! They are dedicated to serving our customers and doing a great job every day.

    I don't understand the people who have nothing but negative thongs to say about Windstream. They should just quit so the focused and positive people can make a difference here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on providing the best customer experience and everything else will fall in line.
